“Roses do not bloom hurriedly; for beauty, like any masterpiece, takes time to blossom.” – Matshona Dhliwayo
We forget that we are literally masterpieces.
No one in the world is exactly who you are or has lived the life that you have. You are such a unique blend of every single thing that you have been through.
A true masterpiece.
When talking about an actual artist making a masterpiece. There are so many unseen layers and moments of planning that happens behind the scenes. All of this no one sees and if they did see it I am sure the everyday person would be utterly amazed.
This is the same for all humans. You are a masterpiece.
You have layers and things that have happened in your life that made you who you are. No one will see them or even know that they exist unless you are open about it.
Exactly like an artist.
People look at a painting or a human and they only see the base layer. They are completely unaware of the deeper layers that the painting or you have hidden. The amount of time and effort it took to make it look the way it does today, or the insecurities that are still present.
Go out today, and act like the masterpiece that you are. Don’t apologize. Just live.
